Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: William J. Brennan, Jr., David E. Feller

David Feller introduces Justice Brennan, who, observes that “arbitral awards are not accorded sufficient finality and that federal law intrudes at every turn.” Justice Brennan recommends that arbitrators do their utmost to render decisions that are consistent with the statutes to which they pertain and that, knowing that judicial second-guessing of their opinions will be increasingly likely, arbitrators give detailed, written defenses of their findings.
